spite the bitter winter cold but that protest unfortunately did not last very long some people started breaking down the windows of the parliament building trying to push through the doors destroying the property riot police pushing them back almost immediately clearing out the square our crew actually got injured in the process while filming and the crowd right by the windows riot police started pushing everyone back until like hell and then actually got hit on the head with police batons they were able to continue their work their feeling all right but it was still quite a sight it seemed for a moment that police couldn't really distinguish between civilians and journalists anybody that was in the crowd risk getting hit or kicked for a punch and only later did they seem to distinguish the things journalists protesters and actually tried to avoid the press we saw some protesters being cornered by rival spending quite severely was quite
12:01 am
a frightening sight but right now it does seem that everything is calm down riot police and gain control of the square has cleared out all of the protesters there are still some groups. about a block there very small rescue people in each one in there very quickly cornered by riot police detained and moved off waiting in a police car and saw a lot of people being detained a lot of people were injured as well in the protests that turned violent in a matter of moments what have just as quickly been staying with why officials are going to say we're here to defend our freedom which is being threatened by one man who's in power and he's making all the decisions but i'm still the entire system is riddled with fear we've just seen where the presidential candidates in a client beaten brutally flitters went off everyone was put down on the ground and told to stay down as we heard the attacker swearing he broke the glass in our booth and began stealing our equipment like thieves only people were kicked out some of us regrouped and came here to protest so of course many people. showing the will to
12:02 am
protest what they believe a fraudulent election the only presidential election that valerie's has had of course for all of the one plane coming president nixon that will question good morning to opposition leaders these results are falsified and the over eighty percent that lukashenko gathered is also a falsified number that's precisely why they were out in the street so far international observers haven't reported any major violations in gold they heard of one registered record where an international observer was denied access to a polling station but so far that is the only report on record and we are forced waiting to see whether international observers will break or a more detailed report of their observations of the money incentive in there having a positive conclusion is a very big one the european union has promised umbrella respond a lot of financial aid billions of euros if there is evidence of free and democratic elections perhaps that is why the looks of it will allow the opposition
12:03 am
some semblance of freedom giving them on air time and sanction anti-government rallies but critics of course say that that is all for show international observers are still to publish their reports and will of course update you when we get them. over the us already fighting in two wars yemen has been revealed as a possible from to opening up where there could be secret links between the countries that is feeding into the american media which is now stoking fears that we are a country is a bit of terrorism he's going to chicken. america's secret aims in yemen are secret no more as confirmed by recent we came leaks this patch of classified diplomatic cables u.s. special operations forces are carrying out strikes against suspected terrorists in yemen and the yemeni government is taking the credit in exchange for yemen's cooperation the u.s. heavily finances the country's fragile government but u.s. plans in yemen go further than strikes the military are discussing long term basis

and asking for more than a billion dollars to fight ocado there some of them laughton had a dream for him in a nightmare for us it was to involve us in in inconclusive wars in distant lands that would cost us a fortune there's a kind of intelligence national security bureaucracy that's good in this country last year and americans are irrationally scared when the parcel bomb hysteria broke out in october the us twenty four hour news machine did not fall short of getting americans worst fears a second suspicious package from yemen was found at a better facility the ideal country essentially like o'connor years ago already believed out in the arabian peninsula is behind the shipment the packages from yemen gave rise to a lot of confusion as to whether they were really parcel bombs but one thing that was beyond doubt the fear trigger has been pulled out the m. and was in the news as a terrorist in a matter of days the u.s.
12:05 am
officially deployed predator drones in yemen and started talking about bases there they deliberately over blow all of these incidents because there is a huge constituency a huge business national security business which is paid for by the u.s. taxpayer it's a way of capturing a political supporter way of doing a lot of different things but what it's not doing is beating terrorism the most generous estimates suggest there are perhaps several hundred al qaida members in the poverty stricken strive for. hazards of yemen u.s. special forces have been chasing them we years causing dozens of civilians and what the u.s. is doing in yemen is really inflating the prominence of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula this is a group that probably would have very little street value in the arab street or the muslim street if the united states wasn't propping up anwar a lot of the sort of second coming of osama bin laden i think it it it goes to show how little we've learned from the boogie man days of bush and cheney and how our
12:06 am
own policies in dangerous more in many cases that his policies on the surface american leaders are motivated by the fear of one day receiving a parcel bomb but some say the sas has other layers of motivation you're not going to make the technology of a letter bomb go away by attacking what you think is al-qaeda in yemen you're just going to make it move to another place u.s. government is basically very much into a marketing campaign to make these things look like the government is being effective in light of modern us wars and their coverage in the media we've learned that the objective pros and cons of waging a military campaign can be mutate whenever fear comes into the picture and fear can justify almost anything going to shut down our t. washington d.c. . well coming up later in the program a u.s. policy review what washington fails to mention its report on its strategy in afghanistan. still gambling zones in russia are far

12:09 am
president in his comments on the new policy on afghanistan and pakistan has never mentioned the old or new u.s. counter-narcotics policy or imminent threat and challenge to afghanistan its neighbors and the global security even once that is two main challenges in afghanistan corruption for itself and narco terrorism for its neighbors have been completely ignored the national intelligence estimate of us policy in afghanistan and pakistan excels in one thing in its mission statement finally it got its priority perfectly straight the number one thing is al qaida second it's a pakistan and afghanistan it takes only the third place. but when you listen to

people in course central asian states russia is seen as a land of opportunity of migrants for every year in search of greener pastures but many are forced to work illegally and their life is far from perfect as when the reports. here for the federal migration service comes knocking on the door at four o'clock in the morning officers say they arrive at this early hour before the immigrants leave for work which usually happens around six am that due to the broader so srijit conducted in order to find illegal immigrants usually we have
12:12 am
about seven or eight such raids a month but this time around the federal migration service found just a few people without permission to work in the country one of them is it means twenty two year old. i don't have documents i don't know russian law i've been in russia for about a year and i don't understand the rules and customs of the country who is one of a dozen immigrants who were apprehended during the raid but officials say there are millions more undetected in russia. currently there are about five million foreign citizens working in the russian federation of work legally the vast majority illegally. there are about eight people living in that tiny little room right there we're going to go down the corridor into the kitchen and you can see for yourself that the conditions here are far from cemetery or
12:13 am
convenient this is like a kitchen space something between a bathroom and basically a place where people cook and wash themselves as well. so why do vietnamese chinese in many from other asian countries continue to flock to russia. although they get paid a lot less the native workers would be paid for the same job is still a lot. more than they would have been back home migrant workers are a very valuable resource to countries with developed economies they do all the hard low paid jobs that no one in the country wants to do. russia has the second largest number of immigrants in the world after the united states and there's plenty of jobs in industries such as construction and retail the flow of migrant workers doesn't show any signs of drying up even if the hours are long in the living conditions are cramped it in a college party moscow. the indian government says its plans for the future of kashmir will be released in a few months but the proposal has rob those living in the region who say they
12:14 am
haven't been allowed to contribute to the plan's creation as kashmir separatist leader told r.t. and if oppose all should involve people and include pakistan. we have to talk about a process and that is real exactly a feel for the last for many years that yes india pakistan have talked about kashmir many times but it has been no you know i mean there is no process in motion as far as the two countries are concerned the person here is that you can't have box on the one hand and killings on the other hand for the last five months we have seen what happened before you have lost hundred twelve you said you all. non-combatants students but there doesn't seem to be any count ability from the government side so if the government of india is saying that we are going to have a solution or a conduit of a solution the next two months the factors of the wood it doesn't know anything about that so if this statement is to mean anything let the government of india address some of the issues which we have given to them it's going to only survive
